Staunch conservative Pat Buchanan had nothing but love for Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the 2008 Democratic national convention given before 85,000 people in Denver's Mile High Stadium. This reaction is as amazing as the speech itself!
In 1960, John F. Kennedy said something very similar to Barack Obama:
"Our task is not merely one of itemizing Republican failures. Nor is that wholly necessary. For the families forced from the farm do not need to tell us of their plight. The unemployed miners and textile workers know that the decision is before them in November. The old people without medical care, the families without a decent home, the parents of children without a decent school: They all know that it's time for a change.
We are not here to curse the darkness; we are here to light a candle. As Winston Churchill said on taking office some twenty years ago: If we open a quarrel between the present and the past, we shall be in danger of losing the future.
Today our concern must be with that future. For the world is changing. The old era is ending. The old ways will not do."
John F. Kennedy
Democratic National Convention Nomination Acceptance Address
NOTE: IN 1960, REPUBLICANS SAID JFK DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH EXPERIENCE. THEY SAID THE SAME THING ABOUT BILL CLINTON. SOUND FAMILIAR? BARACK OBAMA'S EXPERIENCE LEVEL IS IDENTICAL TO THAT OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
